The Dual Purpose Of Two-Factor Authentication: For Intent And For Security
Smart home devices are getting smarter (and more secure) by the day thanks to the addition of the two-factor authentication. However, it is important to note that, in this case, the method is not used for security purposes. For example, a smart robot vacuum waiting to enter a room when it detects a person inside adds an additional step of confirmation. A second confirmation step will also prove useful in voice assistants such as Google Home and Alexa.
Use cases where intent is clear but context is missing are also important to address.
iRobot has been trialing on this technology and has rolled it out to their users who can now command the robot to clean a specific area. All this is possible because iRobot has set the context for the vacuum cleaner with the various maps collected over time. In future, we might see robots cleaning up after dinner and who knows, loading the dishwasher as well!
